Inner States

A series of first-person films

A man in a car looks to a woman on his left

A series of pivotal films that reveal inner personal and political truths, shot from a first-person perspective.

Every film in this series offers, in some way, a journey to the inner sanctum of the self: be it the experience of loss, loneliness, madness, or just the simplicity of keen observation from a unique vantage point.

At a time when social norms are rapidly changing and the boundaries between private and public are less and less clear, they offer a profound insight into a cinematic account of the self and its relation to others and to the world

Co-curated with Alisa Lebow, Professor of Screen Media, University of Sussex

Supported by Sussex Docs, School of Media, Film and Music, University of Sussex

‘[...]the platform launches its first fully curated and themed season, and it's a fine an unusual one.‘
